I wanted to put this here because i looked it up yesterday and it could save time to someone, here's list of chain tensions i found.

First video about standard tensioner, first thing that come to my mind when installing it so i moved it closer to the rim.


Here's list of safer chain tensioners i found.

1. Arch Idler Pulley Chain Tensioner - $15 (arch only)

6 Kip's Spring Tensioner / BBR Tuning Billet Springer Chain Tensioners - $50

Chain guide rollers is next thing because 10 teeth gear is made of wear aluminum and does strip fast.

There's plenty options searching for "Chain Guide Roller" on eBay.

Dunno if its good idea there's one made of two bare sealed bearings - $12

I got an arch tensioner and I have 2 tension wheels in the arch 1 for top 1 for bottom, but from my own innovation experiments with a spring one goes faster uphill cuz the motor torque changes wants to eat more chain and if one can feed it one gets a better climb speed anyhow with my innovation spring work that way.

Thanks for your options.
